Subject: Qery about licence
Hi. I wonder if you can help me.
I love this track and actually found it on a CD of pre 1923 music. I thought I could use it royalty free for my documentary I'm trying to make. It's my first attempt you see. But the publishers of that CD said they had remastered it so I'd have to pay.
Could you tell me if I'm allowed to use this recording as it sounds like it's the original 78.
Thanks

Subject: Records before 1925 are not 78 RPM.
This record is technically not a 78 RPM.
This record is from 1913 therefore it is a 80 RPM.
Records before 1925 are not 78 RPM. This record
sounds OK at 78 RPM, but it would sound better at
the correct 80 RPM speed.
This Columbia record was cut at 80 RPM.
The speed 78 was not established until 1925 when it became the standard speed. Before that Columbia cut at 80 RPM and Victor cut at 76 RPM. Other record companies cut at varied speeds. Pathe' cut their records at 80 RPM with varied record sizes from 8 inches to as large at 14 inches to accommodate the length of the song.
Edison always cut his records at 80 RPM.
OKEH was cut at 80 RPM.

This very nice ragtime number goes on with a good pace, with a pleasant orchestration, quite fun to listen to actually.
